1883 - Japanese "Seaways Magazine"

The following is a link to pages from the 16th issue of the 1883 edition of Japan's Seaways Magazine. The pages seem to be talking about the visit of the Japanese naval vessel, Amagi, to Ulleungdo in 1880. Can someone confirm that and give me, at least, a summary of what it is saying?

Seaways Magazine

There seem to be pages from a couple of different issues on that linked page, but the first three pages of the open book are from the 16th issue.

  1. Gerry,

    Mr. Tanaka is saying the following;

    The photo below is spines of the two books Vol.16-25 & Vol.41-49 of "Seaways magazine", both of which are from national Diet Library archive. In this "Waterways Magazine", the name "Matsushima", which indicated Takeshima today (= Liancourt rocks) in the Edo period, is used for Ulleungdo. They wrote about the Matsushima (Ulleungdo) in Vol.16 and Vol.41. In the Vol.16 they mentioned about the identification of the longitude and latitude of Matsushima (Ulleungdo) by warship Amagi in 1879, and in the Vol.41 they referred to the record of re-investigation by warship Amagi in 1880 and they included a map of eastern coast on which they added Jukdo. These copies of "Seaways Magazine" were binded in 1883.
